Welcome to the April edition of the NewsDigest. We continue to see important changes that pose challenges and offer opportunities for organisations and individuals operating in the ageing and disability space.
On 23 March the Minister for Senior Australians and Aged Care, the Hon Ken Wyatt, announced the new Charter of Aged Care Rights to be implemented this year. The Charter is designed to be easy to read, providing the same rights to all aged care recipients regardless of the type of care and services they receive.
